According to former captain Nasser Hussain, Harry Brook may have already accomplished enough in Pakistan to have “nailed on” his spot in England’s Twenty20 World Cup XI.
With only four caps, the 23-year-old Brook came in Karachi. However, the Yorkshire batsman has been in outstanding form during the first games of a T20 series against Pakistan. He has scored 154 runs in three innings at a scorching strike rate of 174.93.
This total includes an 81-run match-winning innings in a 63-run victory on Friday, giving England a 2-1 advantage in the seven-match series. Brook played a variety of strokes, from lofted smashes over the covers to unusual ramps over his shoulder, in just 35 balls faced.
You were wondering going into this series, “How do we get Brook into the World Cup starting XI?” I honestly don’t get how you can leave him out at this point prior to the international competition in Australia later this month.
“He will start that World Cup’s opening game at position five, in my opinion. In any format, he’s going to be a superstar “said the former England batsman.
